It's like hoping for rain in the Sahara, but with all the games the Sox have remaining against the Central, in a weird sense the Sox "control their own destiny" if they start sweeping their opponents:

DET: 3 home, 5 away
CLE: 6 home, 3 away
MIN: 3 home, 3 away
KC: 6 home, 4 away

What is certain is that with all these division games, plus games against Seattle, Oakland, LA and Boston, the Sox will have a lot to say about who wins the Central and the Wild Card. They can help make or break the postseason hopes for a lot of these teams.

I think we need to go 43-10 in our remaining 53 games in order to make the postseason. Every time we win, we peel a section.

Oh my God...folks, this team ain't makin' the playoffs, we can cause a lot of headaches for contenders and if we get red hot we MIGHT be able to be .500, but anyone who is thinking of playoffs should either be entering rehab or awaiting the men in white coats.

Just win today. One game at a time. Winning streaks, and sweeps are still one at a time. If the team finishes .500, it would be a surprise. On an aside, the Sox Pythagorean win formula puts them 19 games under as of today. Interpret what you want out of that.

Neither the Indians or Tigers would be good enough to win the AL East or West. Geography has created what appars to be a hot division-title race. It's doubtful the way the teams in the Central are playing that a Central team has a shot at the wild card, but that won't be clear until the end of August.

On June 20, the Sox fell 10 games below .500 for the first time at 29-39. They nave been playing 1 game over .500 since. On June 20, both the Indians and Tigers were 42-29, 11.5 games up on the Sox. The Twins were 6 games ahead of the Sox. The Sox were 2.5 games ahead of the Royals.

Since June 20, the Sox have lost a half game to the Indians, gained a half game against the Twins and lost a game to the Royals. The division has been stagnant. The Sox aren't in the process of a surge comparable to the 1951 Giants, 1964 Cardinals, 1969 Mets, 1978 Yankees or even the 2005 Indians. Making such a run is still possible. A three- or four-team division race is possible if the Sox and Twins put hot streaks together.

People around here like to believe that the AL Central is the toughest division in baseball, but it has been there for the taking this year, if only the Sox had played decent ball.
